Prophecy Edit

Dayu was near the Phoenix border when he knew he had lost his entire family in the Death of Kyuden Tonbo. [1] Dayu's father, the Dragonfly Clan Champion Tonbo Manaka, had been informed of a prophecy told by Tonbo Euiko, which regarded a future disaster for the Dragonfly Clan. The daimyo then arranged for many of the Dragonfly to go on errands elsewhere in the Empire, so that when Kyuden Tonbo was attacked and almost completely destroyed, half of its inhabitants were away. Dayu returned to aid in the rebuilding of the home of the Dragonfly. [3] [4]
